Today’s edition of adorably pathetic North Korean propaganda comes in the form of a photograph showing North Korean forces storming a snowy beach via a fleet of hovercrafts. Only problem? It’s a heavily photoshopped image.

Check out Alan Taylor‘s take on the image while writing for The Atlantic:

“At least two, possibly three hovercraft appear to have been pasted into the scene of a military exercise, reportedly taking place on North Korea’s east coast on March 25, 2013. Two hovercraft crashing through the surf, nearest to the photographer, appear to be just a single hovercraft, with a digital twin copied and pasted nearby. Two of the more distant craft appear to be digital twins as well. A third vehicle in the scene has some of the hallmarks of digital pasting, including color mismatch, a slight halo, and soft edges.”

The original caption of the photo reads:

“This picture released by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency on March 26, 2013 and taken on March 25, 2013 shows the landing and anti-landing drills of KPA Large Combined Units 324 and 287 and KPA Navy Combined Unit 597 at an undisclosed location on North Korea’s east coast.”

Faking the funk to instill fear in your enemies? That’s so cute, Pyongyang.
